Two important stories about seed and Monsanto 20.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Food & Health For decades, pockets of resistance around the world have been tracking and educating general publics about farmers' right to seed and the importance of not allowing corporations to patent seed or to manipulate genetic material for pure speculation and gain. Behind most of these stories of resistance has been the far-reaching control exercised by corporate giant Monsanto, particularly when it comes to demanding royalties on seed (harken back to Percy Schmeiser ) and modifying seed to be resistant to glysophate, a chemical pesticide it produces and sells under the brand of Roundup. Yes, we have all heard it said: Roundup Ready! Catchy and scary at the same time. This week two stories once again are showing how carelessness in food production and a lax regulatory framework, as well as popular pressure and resistance on food issues, can have dramatic results. These stories run deep. Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) has been monitoring the regulatory climate around genetically ...

New Research Shows: Organic Farming Can Make an Important Contribution to World Nutrition 16.11.2017 Environmental News Network
A global conversion to organic farming can contribute to a profoundly sustainable food system, provided that it is combined with further measures, specifically with a one-third reduction of animal-based products in the human diet, less concentrated feed and less food waste. At the same time, this type of food system has extremely positive ecological effects, i.e. considerable reduction of fertilizers and pesticides, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions – and does not lead to increased land use, despite lower agricultural yields. These are the findings of a new study, which included the Vienna-based Department of Social Ecology among its contributors. Results have recently been published in “Nature Communications”.

Utah's Ag Gag Law Is Declared Unconstitutional 16.7.2017 Truthout - All Articles
In a major victory for animals and supporters of free speech, a federal  judge  has ruled that Utah's law making it illegal to film what happens at farms and slaughterhouses is  unconstitutional . These laws -- which have become known as ag gag laws -- are blatant attempts to hide what's happening on farms and criminalize  anyone  who attempts to bring the truth to light. They started popping up in the early 1990s, when North Dakota, Kansas and Montana all passed legislation that make it illegal to enter facilities that are closed to the public, or to take photographs, or audio and video recordings. Since then, attempts to pass similar laws have been tried and defeated in a number of  states , but a few have unfortunately succeeded in passing various versions of them. Utah's ag gag law was passed in 2012, which made it illegal to record an agricultural operation while trespassing or entering the premises on false pretenses, whether it was an activist,  undercover investigator  or journalist, and it would ...
